The Asia Pacific soda ash market size reached 40.3 Million Tons in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 43.8 Million Tons by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 1.3% during 2023-2028.
Soda ash, or sodium carbonate, is a white crystalline solid that is a member of the Chlor-alkali chemical family. It is an anhydrous powdered or granular substance that is refined from the mineral trona. It can also be found in naturally occurring sodium carbonate-bearing brines. Soda ash competes with caustic soda as an alkaline source in various processes. Commercially used soda ash is highly purified and sold in various grades, which differ in bulk density.
Asia Pacific is one of the largest soda ash markets in the world. The market is primarily driven by the vast array of soda ash applications. In the glass industry, soda acts as a fluxing agent, breaking the Si-O bonds of silica, thus reducing the viscosity of the melt and lowering the temperature required to form the glass. It is also incorporated in the production of powdered soaps, detergents, and various specialty cleaning products for household, industrial, and commercial applications. Besides this, soda ash is used as a substitute for sodium hydroxide for lyeing in cooking. The region meets its soda ash demand by importing the majority of the product as the regional capacity is small relative to its consumption. Furthermore, the stringent regulations by several governments regarding the use of soda ash for wastewater treatment and other environmental applications to improve the alkalinity of lakes and the pH value of the water are also propelling the growth of the market.
